Mrs. Pulliam - had her for 1st grade in '68. Before going out to recess, we had to go up to her desk and tell her what we wanted to be when we grew up. Tim Fox said "rock and roll star". Tim got to stay in and clean the bathroom during recess that afternoon...

Federal court: Ex-Lawrence police sergeant in KU ticket scandal not fired for racist reasons

Mr. Holroyd - Read the article. I didn't see Corliss's name in the first sentence or anywhere else. Do you think Corliss had something to do with the sergeant's dismissal or the timing of this decision or the article?

Milt Newton giving back

Milt is obviously a class act. Love seeing him (and others) doing great stuff like this.

KU MBA students examine no-shows at Bert Nash, other nonprofit problems

Telephone reminders. Dental offices have been doing this for years/decades. Now they do email and text reminders, too. Nice that it's an easy fix. Too bad Bert Nash didn't figure this out years ago. Good for the MBA students.

Very cool. Kudos to Lauren and her teammates from UMKC (and suppose those other ones, too).

Chestnut wants to focus on big-picture issues with second term on City Commission

Funny you should mention that, beatnik. The Rob Chestnut I knew at KU (30 years ago) was one of the most spiritual, level-headed people I knew. Not an "in your face" Christian, just a good guy that lived his faith. I suspect the principles he lives by have also made him a successful accountant/CFO. Kudos for getting off the commission when he saw that personal/job reasons could have diminished his effectiveness. I have no doubt he wants Lawrence to be as great as possible and will be dedicated to that once again. Wish I lived there again so I could vote for him (and go to some Jayhawks games).

Opinion: Obama retreats to politics of gridlock

I agree with Ignatius, but if past performance is an indication of future results, there is nothing to indicate a change in leadership style or direction.

Daughter shares pain, hopes of families affected by Alzheimer's

Probably not the same wonderful Edith Marshall that taught (my two brothers and me), since this Edith's husband was a jeweler in Anthony, KS (SW of Wichita) for 50 years.

Niagara's typos

Finally justice prevails. Teams and schools that can't spell deserve to be beaten by at least 40 points.
